Some fans don’t believe Guillem Balague after the Spanish journalist appeared on BBC Radio 5 Live with an update on Gareth Bale and his situation at Real Madrid.
Is Gareth Bale being treated harshly?
According to Balague, for the first time since his move to the Spanish capital in the summer of 2013, Bale wants to leave the club.
The Spanish journalist went on to say Bale was ‘angry’ and ‘fed up’ with his situation at the club after he was left out of the squad to play Club Bruges in the Champions League last week (via BBC Radio 5 Live).
The Wales international was close to leaving the club in the summer for Chinese Super League side Jiangsu Suning on a three-year contract for wages reported to be £1m a week.
However, the move was never completed after Real Madrid pulled out of the deal because they wanted a transfer fee.
Despite the update from Balague, it seems fans were quick to call out Balague for his update on the situation.
Here is a selection of tweets from some fans:
Balague can tell us the world is ending tomorrow and it won’t happen

“Gareth Bale and Real Madrid – the story that just won’t go away.” How could this “story” go away if the likes of Guillem Balague, @5liveSport, @BBCSport, @diarioas do everything humanly possible to revive their own speculations on the matter time and time again!?
